Interior Design Trends 2016 India, by Architect Anil Laul

An year has gone by, gifting sweet memories and teaching lessons worth remembering. A brand new year is here to stay. With the arrival of new year, trends in every sphere is  going  for a makeover. So let us see what is going to be the 'in' thing in interior designing this year.

1. Minimalist approach

Even though minimalism has gained roots over the decade in our country, it is likely to grow and flourish this year. Clients as well as interior designers have started to believe in the 'less is more' concept and are going for simpler interior designing  with deeper sense.

2. Gadgets at bay

No, this certainly does not mean that our country has gone from a tech- inclined life to a simpler one overnight. The only interpretation is that people have started to feel the congestion at home with show casing all the hi-fi gadgets. Now, instead, we long for a more natural, clutter free and soothing ambience in our living and bedrooms.

3. Sustainability to be encouraged

Sustainability has been the buzz word in the recent times in almost every sphere of life. This is going to continue this year as the need is getting more and more urgent. Reinventing, reusing and reducing will be the words you will constantly be hearing  from your designers. With the need to reduce carbon footprint, newer methods and technologies will be adapted, moving away from the inefficient traditional ways.

For eg- Old  useable decor items can not only bring in the vintage look but also help the planet by reducing the need for a new item.

4. Love for local products on a high

People are turning back to the local market for both- things of aesthetic value and  basic raw material. This will not only keep us rooted to the Indianness, but also be a great encouragement for the local producers. This time, people will be proud to have 'made in India' stuff in their homes, for their homes.

5. Greener urban homes

No matter how modern we become living in ultra modern societies, the need for the warmth of nature will always remain. With personal spaces shrinking and owning large plots(with good soil) becoming a thing of past, we have started  creating urban gardens in our own homes. This year and the years to come will see more and more of potted plants, organic vegetable gardens on the terrace, and ornamental ones all around.

So, go a little more greener this time and you can only long for more.
